What do you mean by "I am unable"? What, exactly, have you done so far, and what where the results? Which steps of the installation instructions did you manage to complete?

I have downloaded the jforum and unpacked it. I am not able to processed further. What is my next step what is the meaning of

"After the download, unpack the .ZIP file into your webapp's directory (or anyplace you want to put it). A directory named JForum-<release> will be created, where <release> is the version, which may be "2.0", "2.1.7" etc... this it just for easy version identification.

"

Thank you.

It means that the zip file expands into a directory that you should put wherever your servlet container keeps its web apps. Are you familiar with Java web apps and their general structure? Do you have a suitable servlet container and a compatible database running already?

Then I would suggest that you go through some Java web app/servlet/JSP tutorials to become familiar with these concepts. I'd also advise to do it without the help of an IDE at first in order to understand the inner workings of web apps; that's something that you'll need over and over again. Some simple examples can be found at http://faq.javaranch.com/java/CodeBarnServlets
